"Oops, try again. compute_bill(['apple']) resulted in a TypeError: list indices must be integers, not str "

shopping_list = ["banana", "orange", "apple"]

stock = {
    "banana": 6,
    "apple": 0,
    "orange": 32,
    "pear": 15
}
    
prices = {
    "banana": 4,
    "apple": 2,
    "orange": 1.5,
    "pear": 3
}

# Write your code below!
def compute_bill(food):
    total = 0
    for i in food:
        total += int(food[i])
    return total

food is a list with products, just like shopping_list. So how do we get from product (apple, orange and so on) to the actual price? Maybe we can use our prices dictionary?
